On the Christian Life
As the title suggests, this volume addresses the Christian life and begins with the Scriptural exhortations of living it. It continues with the importance of self-denial and the promotion of our neighbor and those in the church, with examples of bearing the cross and perseverance through patience. In the final chapters, Calvin calls the Christian to be mindful of the heavenly future and warns against undue love of this present life, but he also advises how to live it cheerfully and expectantly of the mercies of God and in avoidance of inordinate earthly desire.
